this week. mr. romney speaking to the hispanic chamber of commerce. the president on univision. everybody agrees they need 38% of the latino vote. right now the president is up two to one among latinos. continuing with kristine pelosi and jackie gingrich cushman and senator evan bayh. can the republican candidate overcome his own harsh, very harsh antiimmigration rhetoric during the primary season and draconian language that broke no compromise, no compassion at all for the undocumented? >> i think it really is a problem for mitt romney but a bigger problem for conservatives and republicans in the future. the demographic wave of hispanics that has hit america is something that is going to be continuing and if conservatives cannot reach out and win hispanic support they are going to be a permanent minority. so mitt romney has got to get serious about this. i think the best way to do that is to talk about legal immigration reform. because the fact is illegal immigration is now down to a 40 year low. and we he could solve illegal immigration if we would simplyn legally, people that we need w

.t.c. awed to be extended. -- ought to be extended: the u.s. chamber of commerce, national governors association, the governors wind energy coalition, american farm burea federation and many major national newspapers have all weighed in saying this is important to our country's future. members on both sides of the aisle, have i mentioned, have said the p.t.c. should be extended because they know and they've seen the positive effects of the p.t.c. on their communities and across the country. they also know that wind energy and renewable energy more generally is the future. it's the wave of the future. there's no question. all you have to do is look at the rest of the world. look at china, look at spain, look at denmark, look at developing countries. they're all investing in clean energy. it is not something they're doing to feel good. in sum extending the p.t.c. is a no-brainer. it's common sense. we need to do the job we were sent here to do. we ought to be extending the p.t.c. as soon as possible. it equals jobs. we ought to pass it as soon as possible. madam president, i'm going to

the commerce department and what it showed was that the median price of a newly constructed home is at $257,000. that's a jump up 11% from july to august. now, a few reasons for these higher prices. less of a supply of homes on the market and that means more people are going after fewer properties. plus, mortgage rates are at record lows. that's a real good incentive to get people out there to buy. also, an increasing number of buyers. they just haven't been able to find previously owned homes that they like, they are opting to go brand-new and those are traditionally more expensive. victor? >> good news for the housing market. what impact did this have on the overall economic outlook? >> no doubt about it. housing is really a critical component and manufacturing is what pulled us out of the recession and economists, they want to see them pass the baton. that's really important for consumer spending because when people feel like their home is worth more, they feel wealthier and they tend to spend more and that's something our economy needs. a direct correlation with the job's market. people

the constitutionality of the law in its totality as a related to the commerce clause and the individual mandate. we began that litigation and motions were filed by the government and then the case was taken to the supreme court. after the decision, i filed a motion to lift the stay in oklahoma asking the judge to consider an amendment to our complaint. as you know, the original challenge about the constitutionality of the law, this is about implementation. this addresses the concerns about the irs ruled that was adopted on may 18 and the affordable care act's implementation of the employer mandate, the penalty that is known under the law dealing with large employers. our lawsuit is about that r ule and is seeking to hold government accountable as it relates to implementing that portion of the a lot. host: what about that part of the law is unconstitutional? what are you arguing? guest: the specifics include that under the aca, if a state is not the bar -- adopt an exchange, the tax credits do not issue to that state and the employer mandate penalty does not accrue, either. the irs disregarded that
of commerce. good to see you, carl. hispanics a very important and key voting blob. so far romney a bit behind in the polls with them. will this rare conference call that he had today outlining his campaign message make a difference and why did he choose to do it? >> reporter: first on the latino vote, governor romney does trail about 3-1. pretty high. republicans need to get well over the 30%, 35% mark in the latino vote to be truly competitive nationwide. the fox polls, the fox latino poll suggest that mr. romney is down in the 20s on that score. the campaign held a news conference teleconference a short while to talk about what will be the next couple of weeks of the romney-ryana campaign's intense look at the economy. what a senior adviser said on the call was that voters do recognize that mitt romney has a plan to fix the competent, they don't know a heck of a lot about what is in it. the nexium couple of weeks before the debates there will be an intensified effort to talk about those policies. romney likes to talk about it in five points but he put out a 63-page book about it in more det
on coal act. you should know that according to democrats on the energy and commerce committee the stop the war on coal act is a 302nd bill passed by the republican house this year alone to include provisions endanger land, water and air by weakening rules and epa and existing protections for coastal areas and public lands. you should know that in a republican senate led by a long-standing friend of coal industry polluters this bill would have a better chance of sailing through. the battle for controlled congress may have as much to do with the country as the presidential lace does. you should know what tim pawlenty is doing as he stepped down as the co-chair to become ceo of the financial services roundtable, one. most powerful industry groups in washington representing the interests of wall street and fighting tooth, nail and claw against any and all regulatory incursions that might reduce the power or profitability of the financial sector. according to reports, pawlenty's salary could be $2 million a year. he joins a long list of former politicians, democrat and republican, who cashe

testify before the commerce committee to give us the benefit of their immense experience, neil armstrong and gene cernan were able to do it. their testimony in may of 2010 helped us craft the nasa reauthorization act of 2010 in which we managed to pass a balanced plan that prioritized nasa's development of future exploration beyond low-earth orbit while putting significant resources into commercial development of crew vehicles to the space station. we passed it unanimously in the united states senate, very bipartisan, and we passed it on neil armstrong's birth tai. -- birthday, august 5, 2010. when the space shuttle was retired, some thought the space program was ended. you know, i took a group of cub scouts actually to johnson space center in houston just a few months ago. they have a great program for our scouts -- well, for any group that actually wants to go and spend the night at the visitors center and they get to tour nasa and hear about the great feats of our country in space. and one of the little boyce said to our nasa administrator -- and one of the little boys said to our nas
of the little people who work at the embassy, people who keep the commercial commerce office open, the people doing the wonderful work with n.g.o.'s to show them how to work, to build a free and new kind of society and also to the foreign nationals who work in you are eassy. so we think about you. i say to the leadership of those countries again, call for calm, call for tolerance. but i say to my colleagues here, we've got to call for calm and tolerance right in this institution. we've got to really support our men and women in the state department, our men and women in the milary, all who serve overseas are representatives of united states of america, whether you are the peace corps or the marine corps, whether you are the foreign service or the commercial svice or whatever, you're in the service of the united states of america, promoting our values trying to help promote democracy and also trying to have economic and strategic cooperation. i thank our foreign service staff, many of them live in maryland. but that's not the point. ey live in the united states of america. and so i say to all
people. when you go to kabul today, you see a city with electricity, with commerce, with cars, with movement, with women in school, and the average afghan doesn't want to go back to the taliban way of doing business where there is no music, there no interaction with each other, only on terms that they set for you. and so what you see on your television at night is a political struggle for the heart and soul of the middle east. this has been going on for a long time, and finally the lid blew. egypt was an authoritarian, corrupt dictatorship. tunisia, libya was ruled by qadhafi, syria by assad. and what you see is people who have seen another way of living are saying enough already. i'm not going to be part of that anymore. i'm going to try to change my life and my children's life. within that population, you also have people who are dead set on making sure that that nation and the islamic world goes backward, not forward, and we have to take sides. and if we don't take sides and we sit on the sidelines, we'll pay a price. i think it is better to help people fight the taliban th
talking, at the hispanic chamber of commerce event where mitt romney was talking around this time yesterday. finally here, jim, you talk about timing, here we are, still counting 49 days until november 6th, the timing isn't great for the romney campaign to have to explain these remarks that, you know, yes, they were made last may, but just as you were explaining yesterday, the romney team is trying to reboot his campaign, are they not? >> reporter: that's right. that's what they were saying yesterday morning, that they were sort of retooling his economic message and that was a big reason why they were having this speech out in los angeles and obviously there is also the irony that he was reaching out to hispanics the same day that a videotape was coming out, showing him wishing he were latino, because that might improve his political prospects. i think the big problem for mitt romney in all of this is that there are things for liberals to not like here, things for conservatives to not like here. obviously if there are people who are perhaps in the middle and thinking about voting
government funded. this one is through the department of commerce. they help you connect with those large corporations that would otherwise probably not look at you as a potential source. >> so peter, this feels to me like we don't hear this part of how government actually contributes through raising the sba cap so there's more capital. making sure that minority owned and women have more opportunities to bid on the big contract. >> certainly, government plays a decisive role in deciding who gets an opportunity for the businesses out there. one of the things i'm curious to hear from you guys at the table, my sense from talking to other business owners is that you're by and large not sitting and waiting for the government to solve your problems. you're waiting for demand to return into the american economy. there are not enough people in america today who can afford to buy your goods and services. that's something that government can influence this in a very direct way. >> i love that issue of demand. sometimes black hair care is called the recession proof industry because we always have de

. he had the speech in front of the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. he had a big interview with telemundo, this candidate forum and more than that, he has begun to spend millions of dollars on spanish ads in hispanic tv. we'll have to see if it works. i hope it's not too little too late. it's very important for the latino community that we not be taken for granted by one party and ignored by the other. the best thing that could happen to us is that both candidates fight hard to earn our votes and to really court us. >> i know you called romney's trip latino paloosa. i like that. and he is sort of going on that, right? >> you're right. >> he did talk about immigration and he seemed to soften his stance. tell me about that. >> he definitely softened his tone. we've now gone from him talking about vetoing the dream act to some extensions for some young people. he specifically said there will be no round-ups, massive round-ups and deportations. he didn't give many specifics as to what he's going to do with the 11 million here undocumented. he also dodged and weaved on the answe
began the week on monday in l.a. speaking to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. he did a telemundo interview and then this forum yesterday. something he hasn't done until now really, until after he clenched the nomination after he formally became the nominee after the convention. he's also spending a lot of money on hispanic ads lately. so we're seeing a sprint to the finish all out effort by mitt romney in these last 40-some days. it was a very good crowd for him. his people did a great job in packing the house with some of the strongest supporters in south florida. president obama will have a similar crowd today of his strongest supporters. he got some tough questions, john, at the beginning. a real grilling on the immigration issue. but then they moved to the economic and education issues. you could see this was a mitt romney at ease. i could tell that he's been preparing and briefing for debates. this was not a debate format. it was close. he did well. >> you talked about immigration there. one of the reasons that mitt romney is trailing president obama 2-1 among latino voters
